Former coach Fabio Capello hopes the San Siro crowd won’t boo Gianluigi Donnarumma as he returns to the stadium for the first time since his free transfer to PSG this summer.

Donnarumma returns to the ground on Wednesday evening for Italy’s clash with Spain in the UEFA Nations League Finals.

Capello says fans should support Donnarumma as he can deliver a ‘huge’ amount of money to the Italian side – although he agrees that the goalkeeper ‘should have behaved differently’ towards the end of his AC Milan career.

Former coach Fabio Capello hopes the San Siro crowd won’t boo Gianluigi Donnarumma when he returns to the stadium for the first time since joining PSG this summer on a free transfer.

Ahead of Wednesday’s game, Capello told Il Corriere dello Sport: “I hope they will fulfill his wish as he is a national team player who has made a huge contribution.

“Let me say, however, that he was ungrateful to Milan. After everything the club did for him and his family when he was a kid, he should have behaved differently.”

Donnarumma also shared his thoughts on his return to the San Siro on Wednesday night.

The former Rossonero said it would be sad to receive a hostile reception from the club’s supporters on his return as he admitted he “will always be a fan of Milan”.

“I have always given everything for Milan, right up to the end,” Donnarumma said at the press conference on Tuesday.

“I’m sorry because this is a very important game, a Nations League semi-final, so I hope the fans can help us.”

The Italy international helped the Azzurri to the European Championship before joining PSG… but still faces criticism from fans.

AC Milan supporters have made their point of view clear by putting up a banner that read: ‘Donnarumma, ****, you will never be welcome in Milan again.’

This isn’t the first time the Milan ultras have taunted Donnarumma. The Italian supporters mocked him while playing for the U21 national team.

The fans were even seen waving money at Donnarumma as he played for the youth.
